Artist: JERMAN, JEPH
Title: Instability Studies
Format: CD
Label: Anomalous
Country: USA
Price: $14.00
"This is Jephs third CD for Anomalous Records, following the solo disc The Second Attention and wuwei by his animist orchestra. Edition of 300 copies, hand made covers. The sugar bowl is ceramic, with an ill-fitting lid which will rattle if not seated properly. By changing the position of the lid in relation to the bowl, a number of different vibration rates were discovered. The simple recordings are stereo imagings of a single shaketable. The complex rendering is a series of shaketable recordings layered via overdubbing on the four track." - Jeph Jerman.

Artist: JERMAN, JEPH
Title: Exploded View
Format: Cass
Label: Steady Hand
Country: USA
Price: $7.50
"Jeph Jerman is a musician in Cottonwood Arizona. He started playing the drums as a teenager and spent years in bar bands around the US. Later on, his focus in music became improvisation and experimenting with field recording, home-built instruments and electronics. He released music under the alias Hands To starting in the mid eighties. More recently hes founded the Animist Orchestra project; a makeshift ensemble of musicians playing pinecones, feathers, sticks and rocks among other things. Jeph writes the score and provides some of the instruments, then the Animist Orchestra tries to emulate as big of a rumble as possible with what they have. In 2014 he received an artist grant from the Foundation for Contemporary Art. Jeph has a long-running duo with Sonic Youth collaborator Tim Barnes. Together theyve released a number of records, latest of which was called “Goethe” on Confront, and frequently tour. This new release, titled “Exploded View” is really something. It demonstrates Jephs characteristic ability to be delicate with harsh sound artifacts and navigate the improvised plane with ultimate attention to detail. This work exposes a level of artistry only someone whos been at it for over 40 years can really pull off." - Steady Hand.
Edition of 50.
